I know it says I’m supposed to be posting “Zelda news” not “my own personal thoughts”, but I talked with our site’s administrators and they said it was totally cool. This past day I’ve been feeling all mixed up inside, and I was hoping you guys could help me out. Just last night I found out that me and my girlfriend of 2 months are having a baby. Obviously, we weren’t trying to have a baby, as she’s a part-time community college student and I’m a struggling writer and news reporter on the Internet, but due to our shared beliefs, we have decided to keep him/her.
Can’t say for certain that I’m 100% ready to be a father; I’m feeling a lot like that Jewish guy from Knocked Up. I’ve been reading a lot of online articles about being a Dad, but sometimes I feel like Internet writers have no idea what they’re talking about. With my pilate class being postponed until next week, I turned to one of my most cherished past-times to calm my nerves—knitting. As I knitted away, I had a stroke of genius: why not both knit something for the baby and incorporate my love for the Legend of Zelda series?
Feeling pretty happy with the final result, especially the “baby bottle quiver.” Haven’t shown my girlfriend yet, but I’m hoping she loves it as much as I do. Posted the rest of the pictures at a crafting forum under a cover identity—catch them here. Expect pics of the little guy/girl all decked out in his/her cutesy wutesy little outfit in a few months. Still haven’t thought of names, so feel free to leave suggestions below. Wish us luck!
